It is imperative for investors deciding to include a hotel in their portfolio to know why they are doing so. APS can help make experienced, educated assumptions about future market conditions and implement a plan to deal with those ever-changing conditions.

APS has over 30 years' experience in helping investors in identifying an opportunity, formulating a plan for it, and then proceeding to evaluate the possibility of acquiring the hotel.

Determining possible changes in management/Franchise APS realizes that a hotel is both a business and real estate investment and therefore needs to be scrutinized by those familiar with the hotel industry. Markets will change – That is a given. APS wants the buyer to understand both property and market dynamics BEFORE purchasing the hotel. Once a property has passed our rigorous screening process, APS can perform a preliminary property and market analysis to establish an initial bid price. Due diligence of the targeted hotel is a must that is often overlooked by investors thinking they "know the business".
